$50 retail? I thought it was $40 retail. At least that's what CSI shows. Looks like someone on Amazon is trying to make their price look better.

I'm a prime member too so checked with shipping what it would cost.

CSI to California is $35.23. So a slightly cheaper price. But if you are buying a bunch of stuff and get free shipping then a better deal.

But you also have to take into account prime shipping is much faster then CSI shipping. I get prime products in 2 days and CSI shipping in 7 days. So you pay $2 and change for a product 5 days faster. At least on the West coast. So not such a bad deal for Amazon price.

But they do have the retail pricing wrong. Not sure if a mistake or a way to make their discount seem better.

If it really is only $40.00 I might cancel my order and wait for a real deal.

Semi off topic I don't qualify for free shipping with CSI so Amazon is my Huckleberry!

$50 retail for the expansion? Wow, that's pretty steep.

The contents on the Zman page doesn't include a lot of the plastic.



It's still expensive, but at least that picture makes it look like a better deal.

Yeah, true, I'm just being ragey. I inventing a new word!

I still want to pick it up since it seems to add a lot to the game. But we have only played it once though.

Expansion is/was an insta-buy for me. Between this game and Through the Ages I get all the Civ action I want out of a board game.

Actually, if we could not take that into account while spamming subscribers to hot deals, that'd be awesome.

It may be a good idea to wait a little while, regardless of retailer:

I just received my copy from CSI. It had the same smashed / missing miniatures issues many others have reported about the European release.

Z-Man recently announced that they are aware of the European release's production problems and are delaying the US copies until they sort it all out.

That means that anything you find available right now (e.g. CSI and Amazon) is probably taken from that European batch and are highly likely to have issues.

You might get lucky though... I'm just reporting the unfortunate news that I didn't.

(Edited for mistakes and also to come off as less thread-hijacky)

So when stores get the new (fixed) copies, how will we know that we are indeed buying the good copies?

I honestly wouldn't sweat it with z-man games (no yellow sweat pun intended). They have been pretty darn good about fixing any issues people are having fairly quickly.

Just open, do an inventory, and go from there.

Definitely $40 at my FLGS. I picked it up and it looks like I may have one elephant that it bent sideways and two missing obelisks. This is something of a pain, but I expect Z-Man will straighten it out.

It's a solid word, though.

I just made the purchase from Amazon----crossing my fingers the contents are hassle free!

Get them in the next print run. Yes, that means waiting a while.

Thanks to this thread, I got it from Amazon (Funagain) for $36.04 including free shipping. No missing pieces, no broken plastic, minimal squishing (mostly the brown elephants) and only a couple of pieces that need to be reglued to their bases. Ordered it last Friday night, got it today (Tuesday).

I'm very happy I decided not to wait for a future printing.
